The technology world is mourning the loss of a man who’s name you never heard before who made a mark on the computing industry patenting a function many of us use multiple times every day. Larry Tesler was working at Xerox when Apple Computers founder Steve Jobs recruited him to work for his new up-start company. Early in his Apple career, Tesler invented the cut copy and paste command that was first introduced on Apple’s Lisa and Macintosh computer systems in 1983 and 1984. Tesler who eventually became the chief scientist at Apple Computers died yesterday at the age of 74. Larry Tesler’s invention made using computers and performing every day tasks on them easier for millions of users and continues to do so today. Larry Tesler is proof that a a good idea, innovation and hard work can pay great dividends not just for an inventor but for all of us. the next time you use the Cut Copy and Paste command maybe you should pause just a second to remember Larry Tesler, the man who created it. That’s the way I see it.
